Transcription Mystery Disc #157
The disc is one-sided and spins predictably at 45 rpm. The speed puts it's age at least in the early 1950s. Though possibly later. The recording is of a 2-year old of uncertain gender. It can speak and knows it's name and age.The kids voice is almost unintelligible so I can't make out that name. The recording ends with the kid yelling for grandma.
Autovoice was owned by the Auto-Photo Company in Los Angeles. They made photo booths and recording booths similar to the Voice-o-Graph company. Their advertising for the recording booths appears to have been heaviest in the early 1960s so I will assume a date in that era.
